The basic trains run can be glimpsed in post#39 and I find that operating just one or two (I don't have all that time to 'play' more) afford me a great deal of pleasure. The beauty of the layout also is I can pick up or leave off when I please and start again where I left off as no staging and the like is required.
Here are some more scenic images:-
To the left Dunlop & Heywood occupy the old GWR stables, next is Railway Terrace and then Hooper & Wollen, Corn Factors & Hay Merchants (successors to Henchard & Farfrae) whose yard is always busy. For Peter, there is another view of the horse and cart.
A friendly wave from driver Augusten Elliott to the photographer as he brings in an evening train from Weymouth and as Sheepcroft Yard is bathed in the glow of the setting sun.
This image I really like, it is so evocative of times of when a boy in Dorset watching such occurrences.
